Sako Finnlight 270wsm

Hi Guys,
Im pretty new to long range hunting but am currently using a sako Finnlight in 270wsm topped with a swarovski 6-18*50.
I'm using win brass, 96gn ADI2213sc, fed 215 primers and 130gn SST's.
Was just wondering if anybody else uses a finnlight or specifically a 270wsm and what sort of results they are getting. To date i have shot Tahr out to 700yds and chamios 500+ yds.
Current accuracy is MOA to .7MOA depending on me on the day.
I'm sure the rifle can do better than this.
Any body got any suggestions for other loads or improvements in the rifle??
I'm thinking of trying 130, 140 150gn Barnes TSx and also Vith Vouri N560 powder.
I am also wanting to sell my swarovski and put a nightforce 3.5-15*56 on top as well so i can adjust my sights for longer range rather than using maori elevation.

Thanks for any responses.
